Nicola Sturgeon clashes with Anas Sarwar in heated debate
Nicola Sturgeon was shamed by the Scottish Labour leader after becoming embroiled in a row over Scotland's vaccination rollout during an election debate hosted live on Facebook. The SNP leader and Douglas Ross' heated clash saw the online hustings hosted by NUS Scotland descend into chaos as Mr Sawar took a swipe at Ms Sturgeon's behaviour, mockingly branding her conduct a "great example to kids and young people across this country."
The row was sparked when Mr Ross confronted the First Minister over the role of the UK in the success of the vaccination rollout in Scotland.
He said: "Nicola over 60 percent of Scots are now protected with the first dose of the vaccine.
"What is the highest percentage of an independent country in the European Union?
The Scottish Conservative leader was then cut off by Nicola Sturgeon.
